Uncollected Tolls on NY Thruway Spike

The Journal News reports, “Uncollected tolls on the New York State Thruway spiked at its 58 toll plazas over the past five years — even as the superhighway shifts slowly to a cashless toll system that critics fear will lead to more lost revenue.” The report adds that uncollected tolls “jumped 23 percent between 2013 and 2014” and adds, “That translated to a loss of $2.5 million in revenue for an agency that is strapped for cash as it tries to stave off toll increases and build a $3.9 billion new Tappan Zee Bridge.”
